Hey, there-I’m Nic! A born and raised Pittsburgh girl, Gen Xennial, 80’s kid, Pisces, weather nerd, makeup enthusiast, and mum to a teenager and three fur babies. I am also a small business owner and lifestyle-documentary photographer based in Mars, Pennsylvania. When I’m not creating or editing photos or taking care of business tasks, you can usually find me at one of my kiddos’ softball games or orchestra performances, or at a local gym weight training or boxing. I am an advocate for freedom, as well as our military and first responders, and I stand by the philosophy of “shopping small” to support our local economy and other small business owners. Beyond this, my “free time” is typically spent listening to an eclectic variety of music, or spending a quiet evening at home, binging “This Is Us” with a glass of pinot grigio while I doodle and decorate my planner or scroll on social media. I also love being behind the camera, capturing real-life moments, and telling stories through my images.
I have always believed that the best photos are those that are hard to look away from. The kind that catches your eye and takes you back in time. And when you look again, you notice another subtle detail. Whether it’s the laughter of a child, the pride and excitement in a graduate’s eyes, or the tender moments shared between siblings-those are the moments I seek to capture every time I pick up my camera-photos that are dynamic, nostalgic, and worthy of displaying proudly in your home.
This is why my primary focus is family documentary photography. Which, in a few words, means that I creatively capture real moments as they happen, without staging or posing my subjects.
I also specialize in family lifestyle photography and senior portraits, in addition to offering personal branding sessions and professional headshots. All services take place at the location of your choice, throughout the northern Allegheny County and southern Butler County regions.
I strive to capture the authentic expressions and interactions that happen when a family is photographed in their natural element. My hope is that the families who choose me to photograph them will cherish their portraits and pass them on to future generations. And those future generations will have the opportunity to see these photographs as they listen to stories of the early twenty-first century, gain a deeper understanding of our history, and find their own place in the lineage of their families.
I have been photographing families, high-school seniors, and professionals for six years. Knowing that the photographs I have created have brought joy and even helped in the success of others are the things that motivate me to keep doing what I love.
I am dedicated to providing my clients with an all-inclusive, full-service experience. Our session process always begins with a planning meeting where we discuss the details and goals of the session. It wraps up with an in-person proof review and design consultation where, together, we review your photos and customize your product order.
I sincerely believe that family portraits should be more than just something to share online or store on a hard drive. They should be a tangible representation of family members’ love and connection to one another. They should be a reminder of the good times and a testimony of how you’ve faced life’s challenges together.
I include your choice from a selection of fine art products, including options such as heirloom coffee table books and a variety of archival quality wall art pieces with every full session experience. All of my products are carefully vetted, hand-crafted in the USA, and include a lifetime guarantee and certificate of authenticity. I want your portraits to be something your family can cherish for a lifetime and beyond.
Storybook Studios’ boutique experience will leave you feeling satisfied, and our high-touch approach ensures that you always know what to expect throughout the entire process. I only accept a limited number of sessions each month to ensure that my clients receive exceptional service, gorgeous hand-retouched images, and the highest quality products to showcase in your home.
If you’re interested in booking a session or learning more about my heirloom books, wall art, and other printed product options, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I would love to hear from you!
